OK. For static addressing I put the following in
iface eth0 inet dhcp
iface eth0 inet6 static
That then is the only global IPv6 address the i/f gets.
(Note that the IPv4 address is still being picked up via DHCP.)
For a system which is picking up its addresses dynamically (i.e. one
where /etc/network/interfaces contains comments, but nothing else) I put
the following in /etc/dhcpcd.conf
The interface is then configured with this global address in addition to
the one which it gets automatically.
